Please STOP four orphaned wild-born SLOTH BEAR cubs in foster care at DWC Uda Valava and Giritale -- for captivity by the Dehiwala Zoo authorities -- NOW!!
The Sloth Bear is "Strictly Protected" by national wildlife legislation. THIS IS OUR ONLY CHANCE to help the cubs secure their birthright for reintegration into the wild! TOMORROW WILL BE TOO LATE!
Failed conservation proven! No bears have been bred in captivity by the Zoo authorities to date! These cubs serve COMMERCIAL interests as is the norm concerning wildlife among all such establishments in Sri Lanka-- for CAGING or even "EXPORT"!
Please share TO STOP Wildlife Crime! Please sign against stealing four baby wild bear cubs by all those concerned in the Government including the Dehiwela Zoo director and wildlife authorities. It is cruelty beyond measure to take these poor orphaned babies. The cubs will be either exported or caged in the zoo. The cages or dens are extremely small in our Dehiwela zoo. It will mean a lifetime of misery and imprisonment for the cubs. If they are exported they will undergo tremendous fear and suffering. Its totally unnecessary except for the lucrative money involved. These authorities should focuss on the welfare of these animals that they are responsible for instead of using them as lucrative money spinners.
